Today's Lesson

Get paper and pencil and prepare to take notes. You will want to learn from me and not from yourself.

What I learned today:

1. Just because a paint brush looks like it has a wooden handle does NOT mean it is not a plasticy acrylic.

1.a Plasticy acrylic paint brushes melt in the dish washer.

1.c Plasticy acrylic paint brushes that melt in the dish washer STINK HORRIBLY.

2. It is not smart to start making Chicken Fried Rice without making absolutely positively sure that you do indeed have rice.

2.a (This is actually a good thing) My husband absolutely LOVES chicken fried noodle soup. LOL. I took all of the stuff that was supposed to be mixed with the rice and added chicken broth and macaroni. Oh, and my children both can eat three bowls of this soup! [Eek!]

3. It is altogether completely surprisingly possible for a nine teen month old to remove his diaper while dressed in overalls. Don't ask me how.

3.a Naked nineteen month olds say “What? What? What?” and point while poop is sliding down their legs. (The diaper taking off experience and naked pooping were actually two different experiences today.)

4. It is unwise to give a nine teen month old a push up sherbert treat from the ice cream truck.

4.a Said nineteen month old does not know that you can not hold the treat upside down and push.

4.b Said nineteen month old gets very sad when they see their treat plop on the side walk.

What else did I learn today? I'm sure there is more … I just for some reason can't think of anything else.

That 19 month old is now 31 months old.  It is amazing how time flies and how many other wonderful things they teach you.  For instance today he taught me:

1.  I love being awakened to a knee on the belly and a sloppy kiss on the cheek.

2.  31 month olds can find a buttercup buried in an acre of grass.

2.a  Said 31 month old can produce an amazing smile as he picks said buttercup.

3.  Said 31 month old doesn't like thunder.

3.a  Said 31 month old's mother loves getting cuddles and movie watching while said 31 month old hides from the thunder.
